Hyperolius glandicolor — Gong Frog
Hyperolius glandicolor was formerly considered a subspecies of Hyperolius viridiflavus.
Tortilis Camp had a small stream running near the reception area that briefly widened into a small pond full of reeds and treefrogs. I heard them the first night we stayed there, and took some flash pictures, of which this was the clearest.
The next day I undertook a more thorough inspection of the reeds and saw that there were festooned with many treefrogs indeed. Note the wide range of colors from light yellow to nearly black.
Many thanks to Dr. Robert Drewes for identifying these frogs.
